I’d be disinclined to shake his hand myself.

I’m a bit particular about being touched by weasels who play the pity card in order to violate human/civil rights on a mass scale, punishing people who had nothing to do with Jaime’s death. Who are suing innocent people who broke no laws — indeed who have to comply with a great many laws and rules. Who even wants to kill free speech and 2A rights by banning proof of concept near-toys which — again — had nothing to do with the school shooting.

There’s not enough hand sanitizer on the planet to disinfect that.

I feel sorry for his loss, but that does not justify turning tens of millions of other people into victims.

[UPDATE] Counterfeit News Network

CNN presented “David Hogg” as a survivor of the Parkland high school shooting in Florida on Valentine’s Day.

Just one little problem: “Same look, same name”.

Videos and other documentation: It very much looks as if “David Hogg,” presented as a survivor of the Parkland high school shooting, graduated in 2015.

From Redondo Shores HS.

In California.

A former classmate reports he always wanted to work for CNN and be an actor. Looks like he fulfilled both dreams: playing a Florida student on CNN.

Technically, he didn’t die at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High-School, so I guess in CNN’s world that makes him a survivor

Rebuttal: “David Hogg” was interviewed in Los Angeles and says he is a Stoneman student.

Perhaps. Oddly though, a web search doesn’t turn up any “David Hogg” of that general age in that part of Florida. We’ll see.

ETA: Someone noted that “Eagles” is seen on a shirt in the alleged yearbook photo. Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS athletics name is Eagles, but the shirt still doesn’t seem to match the school logo.

Maybe he’s legit, but I still find it odd that I find no traces of him in Florida until the shooting, but he does keep turning up in the Los Angeles area (before and after).

Did ANYONE, like, do their fucking job?

The latest report regarding the Parkland school shooter asshole says he was investigated in September 2016 after he cut himself on Snapchat.

“Mr. Cruz has fresh cuts on both his arms. Mr. Cruz stated he plans to go out and buy a gun. It is unknown what he is buying the gun for,” the DCF report reads.

But that didn’t really raise any red flags. Of course.

[The shooter’s mother] said her son did not have a firearm. She said she had confiscated his air gun because he didn’t follow house rules about only shooting it “within the backyard and at targets.”

And that still didn’t raise eyebrows.

But the kicker: the investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services came after he turned eighteen, after he became a legal adult, after he normally wouldn’t be under their jurisdiction. Why?

Cruz came under DCF’s supervision and care because he was classified as a vulnerable adult due to mental illness.

That sounds suspiciously like he was found to be mentally ill by a judge and assigned to DCF. If that’s the case, he was a prohibited person, he should have been reported to NICS by the state, and he should not have been able to buy the AR he used on Wednesday.

To be fair, if that’s how it happened, then possibly the Sheriff’s Office had done their part, gotten him Baker Acted, and that’s why DCF was uselessly in charge.

Pro Tip for DCF: If a guy with a history of mental illness, violence, and destruction starts cutting on himself and tells investigators he’s going to buy a gun you need to get him in a hospital. It’s your job.
